Mortgage lender fees questionsCan someone advise me as to whether paying "points" when getting a home loan is a good thing or not so good thing? I'm also curious to know about closing costs-- specifically, why some lenders charge certain fees and others don't. Should I shop around and if so, how? Advice is much appreciated!August 02 2009 - Colorado Springs00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
